SHILLONG, July 6 - The Meghalaya College Teachers� Association (MCTA) has filed an FIR against the principal of St Edmund�s College, Sylvanus Lamare, and two other college officials for alleged misappropriation of government funds.

The FIR alleged that funds meant for college teachers were diverted by the principal and two other officials, Simon Coelho, secretary of the governing body, and Stelljes Julius, bursar.

�...illegal acts have been perpetuated by the secretary of the governing body of St. Edmund�s College viz., Bro. Simon Coelho along with active participation of Sylvanus Lamare, principal, St Edmund�s College, Shillong, in withdrawing money, funds allotted and released by the Government for the purpose of making payments to teachers engaged and involved in taking morning shift classes in the college,� the police complaint said.

Meanwhile, teachers of St Edmund�s College, who have been agitating for the repeal of an �oppressive� service rule formulated by the sponsoring body of the college, the Congregation of Christian Brothers of India, have rejoined their duties.

The decision to resume work was taken after the college management filed a petition before the Meghalaya High Court. The High Court gave an oral order that all matters have been resolved amicably after the teachers resumed their classes.

The MCTA, however, said that the issues raised by the college teachers were still unresolved, and that the agitation against the management would continue.

The teachers are demanding that the college management reinstate their colleague, J Wahlang, who was terminated �arbitrarily� for taking part in a protest programme.

�We want the service rules to be repealed,� Amanda Basiawmoit, MCTA general secretary, said. She said that the protest against the management would continue in different forms without hampering classes.

�If the management does not give in to our demands, we will intensity our agitation,� she warned.
